Urlacher stars in Xfinity commercial

Brian Urlacher may not be practicing right now, but that hasn't stopped him from showing off his tough-guy persona in a commercial for Comcast Xfinity.

To answer your question, no, he is not wearing a knee brace in the commercial at all. The ad spot doesn't indicate whether the Bears' defensive captain will suit up Week 1 for the Bears.

But for what it is, it's pretty amusing. The commercial even pokes fun at those ads featuring Deion Sanders fluttering around in a fairy costume, with Urlacher smacking a trio of football-clad Tinkerbells out of his face.

Mr. Jenny McCarthy also snaps a remote in half and causes a woman to faint at his mere presence.

Not as racy as Earl Bennett's commercial earlier this year, but Urlacher's is meant to be more light-hearted.
